Don’t Forget to File for Homestead

There is more to filing, but the link below will take you to the Property Appraiser’s website and a direct link to file for homestead online.  In addition to an exemption, the cap on increased tax in future years is a huge benefit, not to mention homestead portablility, if you qualify.  Many new residents forget or are, believe it or not, unaware.  The embedded video is furnished as a courtesy by the property appraiser’s office. 

Please take a look…..or call the property appraiser’s office, if you are unsure.

"To qualify for Homestead Exemption, you must have legal or equitable title to the property, as well as occupy and make the property your permanent residence as of January 1, 2016."
